Spied a potential purchase locally.

It’s not quite 3 and has plenty of toys including the winter pack and ICTP. Folding rear seats, full black sport interior etc.

Wheels are diamond cut and from the pics could do with a refurb.

Money is good for the age at £16950. Mileage which is maybe a bit high is 40380.

I’m planning to buy this one outright and am doing around 10k a year.

It should have been or just about to go through it’s second service (42k)

One owner from new.

Would the higher mileage give anyone cause for concern?

Seems an interesting way to get up the years, although I’m still very much taken with my almost 9 yr old XF.

What output is the engine, some people think the 163bhp version is a bit underpowered for the car, although I appreciate that it's only a short step to the 180bhp but apparently it makes a difference.
I went from the xf-r to an xe-s and have no regrets. I dont think the milage is an issue, although you don't tell us how old it is, as long as it has the full service history to ensure it been maintained to an appropriate standard.

Thanks. Aporeciate the feedback
As mentioned, just under 3 yrs old. March 17

It’s the 180hp auto

I’ll make a call later and get the full info in it.

Your car gets a very good review here fella (DF)

I understand Steve's requirements though - had he lived in Belfast, then the 3.0 petrol wee monster might have been an option for him, but living out a ways means the sensible thing for him is the diesel.

I'm wondering when Steve gets this new XE, which he is going to use for weekends away. The larger F-Pace Mrs Statler has, or the more nimble XE. ( I imagine the XE on the Antrim coastal road being a lovely thing to drive)

Sounds like a great idea for a wee mini meet one day - Larne to Portstewart then Coleraine and back via Ballymena

Once the novelty wears off you'll wish you'd still got it I bet.

I think that would be a good idea Allan :D

We'll see Geoff, the XF is starting to cost a lot of money now.

Still have to find out more about this one and go see it. The pics look good, but I'm a fussy bugger when it comes to paintwork, it could be fabulous, or it could show every one of those miles... :)

I wasn't recommending the XES, but the XE in general :)

Very, very Allan, but small steps up are required for my next couple of cars....

I'd love an 'S' model, but the economics of running a petrol as a daily just don't work for me. I was badly bitten by a BMW 520i a long time ago and the scars are still there....

I love a car with a big 'S' in the model inscription. ;)

This........ personally, as I think you know, I would opt for a petrol

I never looked back at my X250, but there certainly is less room in the back (I don't sit in the back!), but enough for the times I need it

As a driver's car the chassis is a peach

Any other questions ask away Steve.......

XE R-Sport 2.0d in IRR

Thanks Rick.

Phoned earlier and It’s still available.
I’m told it’s a non-smokers car which is essential, so I’m going to see it tomorrow evening.

I have the WBAC but price for mine which is slightly better than I thought @ £5600 - I know where to start from.

Good thing is that there is an almost identical one at another local dealer with 47k and but with pimento red interior, which I’m not keen on. Similar money, so that should give me a lever.

While this is my car, I am mindful that it’s a second car to the F-Pace so outlay has to be reasonable.

Thanks for that Conor, it's a possibility if the XE doesn't work.

I liked the drive. I liked the kit. Ride is good.
Need to take it out to the country.

I’m going to see the other one tomorrow just as a comparison.

Honestly, I got back into the XF and let out a little sigh. Home.

I’m not sure I’m ready to part with her yet.
